Looks as though I'm out of luck for the marriage of Joseph MOORE & Elizabeth CLUFF / CLOUGH and for the birth/baptism of son Edward.

I wonder if his dob is mentioned at his trial.

Edward's spouse was Elizabeth LOMAS daughter of Robert, blacksmith of Buxton
c. 9 May 1779 Chapel En Le Frith, Derby - submitted IGI record.

I wonder if the 1791 is correct for Edward given the supposed baptism date for Elizabeth.
